U.S. oil company Chevron  discovered an oil seep in an offshore Brazilian oil field run by Petrobras  near the site of a November leak that led to civil and criminal charges and sparked concerns about some of the world's most promising deep sea reserves. No traces have been found on the surface, but droplets of oil were found leaking from the seabed of Petrobras' Roncador field, 500 meters away from Chevron's adjacent Frade field, Brazilian regulator ANP said.
